Rosendahl Announces 6th Annual Winter Shelter Donation Drive

City Councilman Bill Rosendahl hopes for the continued giving spirit that happened in 2011, as many items are needed this winter season for the Westside homeless shelter program.

Los Angeles City Councilmember Bill Rosendahl kicked off his annual Winter Shelter Donation Drive benefiting the Westside homeless shelter program.

Starting Wednesday through Dec. 20, Rosendahl’s three council offices will accept donations of travel size toiletries, clothing, and other necessities for the homeless.

The items will be distributed to those taking part in the Westside homeless shelter program. The donation drive this year follows a successful drive in 2011.

"I was blown away last year by the generosity of my constituents," said Rosendahl about the 2011 effort. "I was amazed at the quantity of the donations and impressed by the giving spirit that came from all parts of our district. I’m optimistic that we can repeat what happened in 2011 and provide some extra comfort to those who might do without during this holiday season.”
